A. Here’s a parable, quoted in Tanya from the Zohar. An older king had a young, wise son; loyal and handsome. The King hired the finest tutors to educate him, so that when the time would come he would be able to govern the land wisely. Then the king hired a harlot to try and seduce the prince, to test the strength of his moral character. So while the King did hire the harlot, and wanted her to try all her charms; he did not wish her to succeed.
